    The influx of digital media means that today, whether we like it or not, we are surrounded by an abundance of content day in and day out. Multitasking has become the norm as people expertly bob in and out of platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, and many more each day, as part of their professional and personal responsibilities. In such a scenario, it is vital for marketers to provide promotional content that is short, absorbing and easy to digest – which makes video an obvious choice. Here’s why:

    We’ve seen 3D printing being used for all sorts of things, like creating fake animal parts to discourage poaching, to even 3D printing supercars, so what’s next? Now we know that 3D printing a building, or at least part of a building is possible, but what about 3D printing an entire building?Apparently that is something the United Arab Emirates National Innovation Committee is interested in as they have announced a project in which they plan to 3D print an entire office building in Dubai. The project will be led by a company called WinSun Global who had previously 3D printed an entire…
  • Drone Used To Help Rescue Trapped Rafters

    Drones are more than a novelty and more than just a tool used to take photos and videos. In fact recently it was proven that drones have a lot more use to them and can potentially be used for rescue missions, as proven in a recent rescue effort by the Auburn Fire Department in which a drone played a key role in helping rescue some trapped rafters.While the drone wasn’t used to hoist the trapped rafters to safety, what it did was help airlift equipment such as life jackets to the rafters who were trapped on top of a rock. It also acted as a scout and lookout for when an inflatable boat was…
  • Cross-Stitch Tattoo Ideas That Will Rock Your World

    We're no strangers to the idea of getting tattoos that are inspired by our biggest geeky obsessions, like Harry Potter or Hello Kitty. But there's always a fresh new idea to try, and this time it comes courtesy of a tattoo artist creating cross-stitch patterns. The artist, Eva Krbdk, who is based in Turkey, has taken to Instagram to show off her work, which ranges from Kermit the Frog to a stormtrooper. The designs are incredibly detailed and unique, making us wish we could fly over to Turkey ASAP to get one ourselves. Take a look at some of the tattoos she's done and head on over to her…

  • BMW explores hydrogen fuel cell power in new 5 Series GT prototype

    Scott Collie
    3 Jul 2015 | 12:55 am
    Hydrogen has been touted as one of the most promising alternatives to our current dependence on fossil fuels to power cars because it fits our current driving habits. Whereas plug-in electric vehicles have limited range and take a long time to recharge, hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles can be refueled in a matter of minutes from a pump that looks similar to a fuel pump. BMW has continued its development of hydrogen technology with a new 5 Series GT based prototype, which can drive for 500 km (311 miles) before it needs to be topped up...

  • Implantable pump to regulate fluids in the eye and preserve vision

    Nick Lavars
    2 Jul 2015 | 7:17 pm
    When its levels are slightly off-kilter, eye fluid can create pretty big problems for our vision. When blockages occur they can lead to a build up in pressure that destroys the optic nerve and causes blindness, a condition we know as glaucoma. In contrast, a lack of fluid can cause the eye to cave in and stop functioning, a disease known as phthisis bulbi. Currently, little can be done about these irreversible conditions once they take hold, but Fraunhofer researchers have a potential solution in the works by way of a microscopic pump that can be implanted in the eyeball to regulate ocular…

    Today Microsoft has finally created tables outlining what the different versions of the operating system are going to feature. It was back in May that they finally announced all of the versions of Windows 10 that are coming, but the actual features of each version was still a mystery. We could of course take an educated guess based on history, but as of today there is finally a list of all of the features broken down by version. As a refresh, on the PC there are four basic versions. Home and Pro are the two that will be available for most people to purchase, and Enterprise is available to…
  • You Might Not Get Windows 10 On July 29, But You Get A New Build Today

    2 Jul 2015 | 7:21 pm
    Another day, and another build of Windows 10 has been released to the fast ring. With Windows 10’s official release date of July 29th coming up very quickly now, Microsoft has shifted gears to bug fixes and polish. As I noted just yesterday, build 10158 and 10159 have made some big strides in stability and polish, and today’s build of 10162 is much the same. In fact, unlike all other builds so far, the blog post outlining the new build does not even list any new features other than bug fixes. The last couple of builds have all been to the fast ring. For those that don’t…

  • The AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Review: Aiming For the Top

    Having launched last week and being reviewed today is AMD’s Radeon R9 Fury X, the company’s new flagship single-GPU video card. Featuring a fully enabled Fiji GPU, the R9 Fury X is AMD's new Fiji GPU at its finest, and a safe bet to be the grandest video card AMD releases built on TSMC’s 28nm process. Fiji is clocked high, cooled with overkill, and priced to go right up against the only GM200 GeForce card from NVIDIA that anyone cares about: the GeForce GTX 980 Ti.
  • Windows 10 Build 10159 Released To Windows Insiders

    30 Jun 2015 | 7:30 pm
    Just yesterday, Microsoft released build 10158 to the Windows Insiders fast ring. I was going to write it up but I wanted to kick the tires on it first to give my thoughts to the changes. Normally there is plenty of time to do that, but today yet another build was released. Build 10159 comes today, and once again just to the fast ring, so if you need an ISO you’ll have to wait a bit for this build to come to the slow ring. A few months ago, I really questioned whether Windows 10 would be ready by summer. When Microsoft announced that the launch date was July 29th, it seemed like an…

    I have chickens. You know, the kind that sleep in a coop in the backyard and lay eggs. Three chickens, three eggs, every single day. In the U.S., we have a peculiar relationship with our eggs. We keep them in refrigerators and all of the eggs in a carton — whether it’s six or 36 — have the same expiration date. The eggs from my chickens don’t have to be refrigerated and don’t all expire on the same day, because each day those three new eggs arrive. I like order, but keeping eggs in order of acquisition can be a problem. Leaving them in a bowl doesn’t help and traditional egg…

    The new MacBook is most definitely not for everyone. But I absolutely love it. If you need portability more than maximum power, if your need is for a small, excellent quality display with a great keyboard and a beautiful design, it shows the way forward. I do not generally use a laptop for really heavy duty work; projects such as video or fancy Photoshop work will more likely be done on an iMac desktop. My OS X mobile choice has been an aging, banged up MacBook Air. The processor was slow under Yosemite and the quality of the pre-Retina Display was less than great. Some of the major…

    In trying to create the most efficient solar panels, pay special attention to the portion of the backsheet of the panels. A backsheet layer is the solar panel which solar cells are arranged. The other side of this backsheet, more precisely in the upper middle area is the junction box. A backsheet are often made of vinyl fluoride or PVF which is similar to PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, the material used in pipes and water pipes. P.V.F. It is commonly used in aircraft interiors and vehicles. DuPont, the US chemical company founded in 1802, created in the 1940s, polyvinyl fluoride polymer (PVF).

A photovoltaic (or PV System) is an installation of solar panels that can be used to provide electricity and if you generate more energy than it needs, can be fed back to the network. Domestic photovoltaic systems have two main options installations. Existing properties tend to opt for a mounting system “roof”, where the panels are sitting slightly above the roof surface. This causes the least disruption of the structure and the tiling of existing coverage. The alternative is a system of “roof” where the panels replace…

  • Report: F-35 can't dogfight. Lockheed Martin: Not so fast

    3 Jul 2015 | 12:35 am
    You may have seen a highly critical report insinuating that the F-35 fighter jet can be outmaneuvered by its predecessor, the F-16. The Military said the report is misleading: what's going on here? War Is Boring published a report which said the F-35 can't dogfight, based on a report from a test pilot it obtained. The post gained significant traction on the web, prompting officials from Lockheed Martin to make an official response Wednesday which said the report "didn't tell the entire story."

  • This 'Jesus lizard' once walked on Wyoming's tropical waters

    2 Jul 2015 | 11:48 pm
    About 48 million years ago, a distant relative of the "Jesus lizard," named for its knack for walking on water, darted around the tropical rainforests of ancient Wyoming, a new study finds. The ancient lizard may have also performed the seemingly miraculous feat, though the researchers can't say for sure because they didn't find the animal's feet. From the fossil they did find — a skull with a toothy smile — in 2008, they posit the animal was likely the same size as a modern Jesus lizard — about 2 feet (0.6 meters) long from head to tail.

  • How Section 1201 Of The Copyright Statute Threatens Innovation

    Cathy Gellis
    2 Jul 2015 | 7:39 pm
    It would take many, many blog posts to fully articulate all the ways that modern copyright law threatens innovation. But one notable way is through Section 1201 of the copyright statute. As discussed previously, Section 1201 is ostensibly supposed to minimize copyright infringement by making it its own offense to bypass the technical protective measures (TPMs) controlling access to a particular copy of a copyrighted work. (Sometimes these sorts of TPMs are referred to as DRM, or Digital Rights Management.) It is a fair question whether forbidding the bypass of TPMs is at all an effective…
  • Let's Encrypt Releases Transparency Report -- All Zeroes Across The Board

    We've talked a bit about the important security certificate effort being put together by EFF, Mozilla and others, called Let's Encrypt, which will offer free HTTPS security certificates, making it much easier to encrypt the web. They've been busy working on the project which is set to launch in a few months. But first... Let's Encrypt has released its first transparency report. Yes, that's right: before it's launched. As you might expect, there are a lot of zeros here: This is actually pretty important for a variety of reasons. First, it clearly acts as something of a warrant canary. And by…
  • DailyDirt: Bring Out Your Dead...

    Michael Ho
    2 Jul 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Disposing of dead bodies is usually not a funny topic for anyone -- except for maybe Monty Python. But until we figure out how to cheat death, we're going to need to deal with corpses. Burying the dead six feet under might not be practical in some places, and not everyone is keen on cremation. Here are just a few other options. The Urban Death Project is working on a human compost pile... that is respectful but at the same time practical. It's not exactly a pleasant thought that the deceased bodies of loved ones would be mixed with organic waste products, but Nature doesn't have a problem…
  • German Court Says YouTube Isn't Liable For Infringement, But Wants A Notice-And-Staydown Process

    Mike Masnick
    2 Jul 2015 | 3:52 pm
    YouTube and the music collection society GEMA have been at war for many years. Five years ago, I was at Berlin Music Week and it was one of the major points of discussion. YouTube was blocking all music videos, since GEMA insisted that YouTube should pay rates on par with digital sales (iTunes) rates for each play. Musicians I met with in Germany were furious at GEMA's obsessive control over their own music -- with one musician even showing me how he had an official website that GEMA was aware of, and an "unofficial" website his band showed to fans, which offered up free music (something GEMA…
  • Leaked TPP Chapter Shows How It's A Massive Gift To Big Pharma And Against Public Health

    Mike Masnick
    2 Jul 2015 | 2:49 pm
    Over the last few years, we've seen leaks here and there of the various chapters of the TPP agreement, but generally ones that are quite out of date. The latest public leak of the "intellectual property" chapter that I'm aware of was done last October by Wikileaks and was the version from the previous May (2014). Now, Politico claims that someone has leaked the May 2015 version, though Politico has not published the document (which, frankly, is pretty lame for a journalism property). But, based on Politico's report, the agreement still looks to be what everyone's been saying it would be: a…

    Pre-race game face. The race is run along the beach in Ventura I ran my first 10k race this past weekend at the Fathers Day 5k/10k race in Ventura, CA on Sunday, June 14, 2015. Last year I ran the 5k and had a great day with a 5k PR. I entered this race pretty much at the last minute. The race was on my radar but I’ve been working on re-gearing my workouts and training and the miles have been rolling in an inconsistent way with very short miles on weekdays and only medium long runs on weekends. My approach for the race was to go in and hit a pace that was just past uncomfortable while…
  • XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k Trail Race 2015 Report

    20 May 2015 | 10:37 pm

It was between the Born To Run 50k (30 miler) and the XTERRA Malibu Creek 22k which I had run the year before. The BTR race looked like fun but I finally decided to focus on a course I’ve already run and to shoot for a PR on the XTERRA race.

    19 Apr 2015 | 8:03 pm

It was a tough race and thoughts and emotions are still swirling but wanted to put things down in writing although I’m sure my thoughts and judgments will change over the next few days and weeks. The Leona Divide 50k was part of long term plan to attempt and finish my first ultra this year. In December I started training for my first attempt, the Sean O’Brien 50k but then I figured I should attempt a trail marathon so I switched…

The day before the race I thought I could pull it off even though I had massive body aches and felt like death warmed over. I picked up my bib and shirt but by the time I got home I was a wreck and had to DNS the race. This year I went back to the Bandit a week after running the Sean O’ Brien Marathon but went to volunteer.

After some training I figured it made more sense to do a trail marathon first so with that I changed my registration from the Sean O’Brien 50K to the Marathon race on February 7, 2015. If you’re not familiar with the Sean O’Brien races, this is the second year for the races, held at Malibu Creek State Park in Agoura Hills. Last year runners could sign up for the Marathon, 50k or the 50 miler. The 50 miler turned into a playground for elite runners seeking to qualify for a coveted Western States…

    While Samsung might be widely regarded as one of the larger smartphone manufacturers in the world, it seems that in the US, they have nothing on Apple. According to a recent comScore report, it has been found that Apple’s iPhone has gained a 1.8% increase in market share in the country, bringing their total market share to 43.5%.Prior to this, Apple was sitting at 41.7% in February. As for the competition, most of them have actually seen a decrease in market share, like those from LG, HTC, and Motorola. Samsung was the exception although their market share increase was only by 0.1% putting…

  • Why attempt home automation yourself when you can have a pro do it for you? (Post sponsored by URC)

    Joe Paone
    1 Jul 2015 | 6:47 am
    We know the standard answer to the question in the headline: Because it’s cheaper. But is it really? Now, if you’re an endless tinkerer and do-it-yourselfer, more power to you. If you like to fix your own plumbing and electrical, do your own landscaping, install your own cabinetry, pave your own driveway, or do your own taxes, we respect and appreciate that. Heck, you can buy a titanium replacement hip online if you’d like to install one yourself. The question is, should you? While DIYing can seem to sometimes save money up front and be a satisfying endeavor, the fact remains that…
  • TechnologyTell Review: Phiaton MS 100 BA earphones

    Stanley Goodner
    30 Jun 2015 | 2:23 pm
    When it comes to wearable personal audio, I tend to prefer on- and over-ear headphones. Not so much earphones, even though I’ve experienced some really great products for sound and/or features. For me, in-ear devices are all about the comfort and how well they can hold up to my binge-listening on a daily basis. If it’s not comfortable, you’re not very likely to wear it all the time, right? Now I’m a fan of Phiaton’s products for both looks and performance. But nothing prepared me for the level of comfort with one of their latest earphones. Design & Connectivity At first glance,…

    Apparently not one to “hop on the me too bandwagon” with immature, gimmicky technologies, OnePlus waited for mobile fingerprint recognition to evolve and fully bloom before it could be fitted on the “impressive, thoughtful and versatile” 2.

    In 1998, famed and revered economist Paul Krugman penned the following words: “By 2005 or so, it will become clear that the Internet’s impact on the economy has been no greater than the fax machine’s.” As a standalone quote, it’s somewhat out of context; Krugman was asked to write a piece from the perspective of someone writing in 2098. Still, Krugman predicted that folks in the future might not think too much—if anything—of the Internet. Most people would probably agree he was completely wrong on this particular account. Fast-forward to 2015, and it’s quite apparent that the…

    2 Jul 2015 | 7:00 pm
    The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation for the past year has been on the hunt for people slashing fiber-optic cables throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The FBI called for the public's assistance in June, after 10 attacks had taken place. The 11th occurred on Tuesday, when someone severed cables used by Wave Broadband. Tuesday's attack knocked out service to customers in Alameda County, Sacramento and the San Francisco area, said FBI special agent Greg Wuthrich.

    Information stored on an Android smartphone or tablet is vulnerable to almost 4,900 new malware files each day, according to a new G Data SecurityLabs report. Cybercriminals' interest in the Android operating system has grown, the firm's Q1 2015 Mobile Malware Report revealed. "The report suggests that Android devices are becoming a bigger target for the bad guys and more profitable than in previous years," said Andy Hayter, security evangelist for G Data. The number of new malware samples in the first quarter increased 6.4 percent.
  • 5 Things the Apple App Store Could Do Better

    Chris Maxcer
    1 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    I haven't been thrilled with app discovery on the App Store for years, and while Apple has been tweaking things to make it better, it's pretty easy to enter the iOS App Store, look around, and come to the conclusion that only an infinitesimal fraction of 1.5 million apps must be worthy of showing off -- and unfortunately, Disney's "Palace Pets in Whisker Haven" is one of them. Which raises the question: Are there really great apps that never see the light of day hiding out in the App Store, waiting for their chance to get recognized and shine?
  • Faster, Cheaper Fiber Could Rev Up Internet

    John P. Mello Jr.
    30 Jun 2015 | 4:55 pm
    Researchers have found a way to significantly improve the performance of fiber networks, which could lead to benefits for both consumers and Internet service providers. Information in fiber optic cables degrades with distance. When you try to increase the speed at which the data is traveling by boosting the power in the network, degradation gets worse. "It's like quicksand," said Nikola Alic, a research scientist at the Qualcomm Institute, part of the University of California at San Diego. "The more you struggle, the faster you sink."

    The SpaceX CRS-7 rocket failed minutes after Sunday's launch, blowing up in mid-air. Just after T+2 minutes, when the craft's altitude was 32 km, its speed was 1 km/second, and its downrange distance was 30 km, its flight path apparently began curving downward. Three explosions then occurred. "There was an overpressure event in the upper stage liquid oxygen tank. Data suggests counterintuitive cause," SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted. "The Falcon line has been a remarkably reliable launch vehicle," said Frost & Sullivan analyst Mike Jude.

    Bill Brenner

    Like many of you, I was shocked last week to hear that Stephen “Jamie” Toulouse (@Stepto) had fallen into a deep coma. Family members took to social media to say that his prognosis wasn’t looking good; that he wasn’t expected to survive. But thanks to excellent medical care, prayer and what is surely a strong will to live, Stepto — director of hacker success at HackerOne — seems to have made it through the storm. Saturday, his family posted an update saying he was awake and breathing without help from a tube. “Although he is very weak, he has been…

    The plight of One World Labs Founder Chris Roberts has been picked to death on social media this past week. There’s all the trouble he’s in with the FBI for his airplane-hacking claims. There’s the hit to his company, which had to let a lot of good security talent go last week. Some shake their heads in disbelief because he apparently spoke to the FBI about his activities without a lawyer present. Others saw this saga as an example of hackers shooting off their mouths without the scruples to back it up. Me? I’m looking at this and seeing a way forward for Chris…

    Some folks in the security industry see me as a member of the “Equal Respect” movement against so-called booth babes at conferences. Not exactly. I certainly respect the opinion of people attached to the cause, and good for them, fighting for what they believe in. But for me, this has never been about equal respect among the genders. It’s never been about whether women who work as booth babes are being exploited sexually. For me, it’s been about holding vendors’ feet to the fire and making them work harder to build an exhibit off the strength of the products. To…

    Bill Brenner
    21 Apr 2015 | 6:24 am
    At RSA Conference 2015 here in San Francisco, there’s a lot of discussion about weaknesses to the electrical and wifi systems aboard airplanes. The discussion often turns to the case of hacker Chris Roberts (@Sidragon1 on Twitter). There’s been a lot of strong reaction to news of Roberts being pulled from a plane for jokingly tweeting that he might mess around with the plane’s electronic systems. There’s a lot of overreaction to this story. The TSA and feds certainly overreacted. But those who hold Roberts up as a victim of government oppression are overreacting, too.

One in four (24%) of those shots is captured at work and a third are digitally enhanced in a bid for , er, ‘self  improvement (seems it’s not just celebs and magazines who indulge in a bit of Photoshop).

Seeing dinosaurs look so realistic was something you had to see, and the only way to truly experience the scope of the movie and the details in the CGI was to see it in a movie theater. Now, here we are some 22 years later, and fourth movie in the series, Jurassic World, is set to be released in a week-and-a-half.

Edward Wong and Chris Buckley write for the Times: China’s Communist Party has ample experience extinguishing unrest. For years it has used a deft mix of censorship, arrests, armed force and, increasingly, money, to repress or soften calls for political change. But as he faces massive street demonstrations in Hong Kong pressing for more democracy in the territory, the toolbox of President Xi Jinping of China…

    Reports from Korea suggest that Apple is considering to use an OLED display in the 2018 iPhone. The main reason that is quoted is that Apple wants to improve the saturation and brightness of their mobile phone displays.According to the reports, LG Display may be chosen as the main OLED supplier. LG Display's current small-sized OLED capacity is very small, and so the company will convert its LCD facilities in Gumi to produce OLED displays, with mass production reached by the end of 2017.Read more about Reports from Korea claim that Apple may adopt OLEDs in the 2018 iPhone

  • STT-MRAM MTJ cells can be used to mimick the human brain's synapses

    24 Apr 2015 | 11:17 pm
    Researchers from France's Universite Paris-Sud and the CEA institute say that the probabilistic nature of STT-MRAM devices can be used to create synapses-like neuro system. This can be used to create efficient devices that mimic the human's brain method of operation.MRAM cells (or MTJs) store data using electrons magnetic spin. The technology uses stochastic switching, and so to be sure that a bit is set, you have to applying a current in the MTJ for a long enough time (to increase the probability of the spin changes).

  • Cross-Stitch Tattoo Ideas That Will Rock Your World

    2 Jul 2015 | 2:40 pm
    We're no strangers to the idea of getting tattoos that are inspired by our biggest geeky obsessions, like Harry Potter or Hello Kitty. But there's always a fresh new idea to try, and this time it comes courtesy of a tattoo artist creating cross-stitch patterns. The artist, Eva Krbdk, who is based in Turkey, has taken to Instagram to show off her work, which ranges from Kermit the Frog to a stormtrooper. The designs are incredibly detailed and unique, making us wish we could fly over to Turkey ASAP to get one ourselves. Take a look at some of the tattoos she's done and head on over to her…
  • This GIF Is All You Need to Remind You Never to Buy Bootleg Fireworks

    2 Jul 2015 | 2:02 pm
    If you've got big plans to light off fireworks in the street as a way of celebrating American independence this weekend, think twice - bootleg explosives aren't a great idea. And if you doubt the advice that's been circulated for decades, let this frightening (albeit entertaining) GIF on Imgur serve as proof that lighting your own fireworks can be pretty disastrous. With an eight score on the "Oh sh*t. Oh gawd. JESUS!" counter, it's pretty clear that improperly made fireworks are no joke. So be safe this holiday weekend by leaving fireworks to the pros! Or if you're planning to shoot them off…

  • This Dude's Rant About His Sliced Bread May be the Best Ever

    2 Jul 2015 | 12:30 pm
    There's nothing like eating a perfect sandwich, made up of two bread slices that snuggle each ingredient. But for one British man, this sandwich dream couldn't happen thanks to bread that wasn't evenly sliced. The man, David Walker, complained about the tragedy with a hilarious rant in a Facebook post to Morrisons, a UK supermarket. First posted on Tuesday, it now has over 20,000 "likes" and 10,000 shares. Morrisons Killingworth! You listen to me, you listen good and you listen hard. Do you hear? Right! Look at this photo,... Posted by David Walker on Tuesday, June 16, 2015 Not to be outdone,…

    There are several challenges for national law enforcement authorities working in the global cyberspace, including the collection of evidence in the cloud, a topic that was the focus of the Council of Europe’s recent Octopus Conference on Cooperation against Cybercrime. One participant, a representative of a law enforcement authority in a small European country, spoke of his difficulty to obtain evidence to investigate local criminal activity when such evidence is in the form of digital communications stored in cloud servers based in the United States. He claimed that the procedure to get…

    Xavier Bettel, Prime Minister, Luxembourg Last week, Microsoft partnered with POLITICO to host the first Annual Cybersecurity Summit. The event comes at a key moment in time. Cybersecurity has never been higher on the political agenda in the EU and globally. And with good reason. This month’s cyber-attack on the U.S. Federal Government personnel office, which led to the information of around 4 million federal workers being stolen, is unfortunately not an isolated incident. This event reminds us once again of the importance of governments and companies ensuring the highest levels of…

    In November of last year, the high-profile hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment resulted in the mass release of confidential information and the disruption of IT systems. This widely publicized event is one of many where a government has been accused of a damaging cyberattack. Therein lies the discontinuity. While cybercriminals of course act in disregard of the common good, governments are supposed to be different. Governments are supposed to protect the national security, public safety and economic prosperity of their own citizens and, even further, they are supposed to promote…

    What is trust? As defined in the dictionary, it consists of a firm and assured belief in the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something. But this hardly does justice to the importance of a principle which underpins every human and social interaction. Trust is fundamental to the functioning of our societies and economies. Even more so in today’s increasingly inter-connected world. Unsurprisingly, building confidence and trust online is a key pillar of the recently unveiled Digital Single Market strategy, an ambitious plan which aims to help Europe reap the benefits of…

    28 Jun 2015 | 2:14 pm
    I thought I very well might need a new iPhone after spending this past week in Delaware at the crazy Firefly music festival during which we had to be evacuated one night because of a tornado warning. But everything turned out well, my iPhone 5 is intact, and now I can take my time awaiting iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 rumors to morph into reality. No more ugly antenna lines on the iPhone? Speculation swirled over the past week about Apple possibly ditching those homely plastic lines across the back of your iPhone…that you probably never noticed in the first place. But the plastic is practical:…

Nope, here we have Apple enlisting the aid of former SNL comic Bill Hader, who shares a humorous behind-the-scenes peek at what could have been at WWDC… Alas, there were no iPhone 6S or iPhone 7 rumors in there, just a goat and some larger-than-life fingers.

    If you are a Ford owner you probably want to read this. Thanks to cageymaru for the heads up! Ford is recalling 432,000 Focus, C-Max and Escape vehicles because of a software problem that could keep their engines running after drivers try to shut them down. Ford Motor Co. says there is a flaw in the body control module software in the vehicles. As a result of the problem, the engine could keep running after the key is turned to "off" and removed, or after the start/stop button is pressed to turn the engine off. Comments

  • How Section 1201 Of The Copyright Statute Threatens Innovation

    Cathy Gellis
    2 Jul 2015 | 7:39 pm
    It would take many, many blog posts to fully articulate all the ways that modern copyright law threatens innovation. But one notable way is through Section 1201 of the copyright statute. As discussed previously, Section 1201 is ostensibly supposed to minimize copyright infringement by making it its own offense to bypass the technical protective measures (TPMs) controlling access to a particular copy of a copyrighted work. (Sometimes these sorts of TPMs are referred to as DRM, or Digital Rights Management.) It is a fair question whether forbidding the bypass of TPMs is at all an effective…

    Disposing of dead bodies is usually not a funny topic for anyone -- except for maybe Monty Python. But until we figure out how to cheat death, we're going to need to deal with corpses. Burying the dead six feet under might not be practical in some places, and not everyone is keen on cremation. Here are just a few other options. The Urban Death Project is working on a human compost pile... that is respectful but at the same time practical. It's not exactly a pleasant thought that the deceased bodies of loved ones would be mixed with organic waste products, but Nature doesn't have a problem…

    YouTube and the music collection society GEMA have been at war for many years. Five years ago, I was at Berlin Music Week and it was one of the major points of discussion. YouTube was blocking all music videos, since GEMA insisted that YouTube should pay rates on par with digital sales (iTunes) rates for each play. Musicians I met with in Germany were furious at GEMA's obsessive control over their own music -- with one musician even showing me how he had an official website that GEMA was aware of, and an "unofficial" website his band showed to fans, which offered up free music (something GEMA…

    Over the last few years, we've seen leaks here and there of the various chapters of the TPP agreement, but generally ones that are quite out of date. The latest public leak of the "intellectual property" chapter that I'm aware of was done last October by Wikileaks and was the version from the previous May (2014). Now, Politico claims that someone has leaked the May 2015 version, though Politico has not published the document (which, frankly, is pretty lame for a journalism property). But, based on Politico's report, the agreement still looks to be what everyone's been saying it would be: a…

    Later this year, Ultima Online will turn 18 years old. In the genre of MMOs, that makes the game positively ancient - and it's even more remarkable when you consider that it's still funded via a subscription model. I've never played an Ultima game, much less one that's nearly my age. I wanted to find out what the game is like to play today as a newcomer, and to ask people why they’ve continued visiting Britannia for nearly two decades. I have little to no interest in MMOs, but seeing one of them run for this long is fascinating.

  • An Improved Gmail Clipper from Evernote

    Amit Agarwal
    1 Jul 2015 | 4:06 am
    Evernote, the quintessential note-taking software, has released a new web clipper add-on for Chrome, Opera and Safari browsers. While the web clipper is primarily used for saving snapshots of web pages to Evernote, the updated version is much more efficient at archiving Gmail messages. When you clip an email thread with the new Evernote clipper, it creates a de-cluttered view and re-formats the whole thread so it is more readable. And if you are clipping a lengthy email conversation in Gmail, you now have an option to select individual messages in the thread that should be saved into…

    John uploaded a PDF file in Google Drive and shared it with Peter. A week later, John updated the PDF file and uploaded the new version to Google Drive. Peter however still has the link to the old version and John will have to send him another email informing of the new version. Confusing, right? You’ve probably gone through this situation where you have multiple copies of the same file residing in your Google Drive and, while you would like everyone to use the latest version, they are either not aware that the file has been updated or it takes too much work to locate it in the Drive.

    The English edition of Wikipedia Encyclopedia contains around 5 million articles and if someone were to print the entire Wikipedia encyclopedia into a book, the size of the printed book would roughly be equivalent to 2000+ volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica (source).

    2 Jul 2015 | 8:46 pm
    Microsoft and Kyocera have put an end to a patent spat that began earlier this year by expanding a patent cross-licensing deal between them. In a tersely worded, four-sentence press release Thursday, the companies said the licensing deal would enable them to use “a broader range of each other’s technologies in their respective products.” Beyond that, the terms were not disclosed. It’s another win for Microsoft’s ongoing practice of seeking patent licenses from Android manufacturers. Earlier this year, the company sued Kyocera because of components that are part of Android that…

    Tamar Weinberg

    Ten years ago, social media marketing did not exist. There were online communities. People participated on those communities. It became possible, all of the sudden, for marketers to participate within those communities because they saw an opportunity. And so, all of the sudden, this pure network of sorts became a place for marketers, as they always do, to capitalize upon. In the beginning, a core group of social media marketers were making waves on sites that have since shut down, creating the foundation for social media marketing as we see it today. This very small group of social media…

What does “black hat SEO” mean? It essentially means using unethical methods to boost your ratings on search engines.

    So, you consider yourself a daredevil? A courageous individual, ready for anything? Think again. When Uli Emanuele used his wingsuit to rip through a mountain after hiking it, the basis for what’s considered bold just got dialed up a notch. He literally used his wingsuit (a sport psycho in more ways than one by itself) to fly through a whole in a mountain, ensuring his feat gets seen by several million people. Utilizing a wingsuit to fly close or around mountainous terrain has been a sport since the late 1990s, allowing nutjobs (mean this in the utmost positive sense available) to do…

    29 Jun 2015 | 9:11 pm
    I can’t believe how many times this question comes up. Usually it’s asked by new photographers or photographers that haven’t yet made a decision on which brand DSLR they’re going to go with. Last week I attended a photography meet-up at one of the local studios. Keep in mind that this was just a casual setting and I didn’t even bring my gear (in hindsight I wish I had as there were some shooting opportunities there with new models). Two of the photographers walked up to me and we started talking about photography and videography in general. One of them asked me…

    All new versions of your favorite Adobe creative applications are here! As you might expect it has been a busy few months for me not only getting up to speed on all that’s new for Design and Photography (the areas I focus on), but also creating content so that you can get up to speed quickly. Before we get to the content let’s talk about installation Last year when we released the 2014 Release of Creative Cloud there was a lot of confusion because the installer installed the new CC 2014 apps along side your existing CC apps. People didn’t know if they needed to keep the…

My friend Victoria did an even more extensive Adobe Slate documenting the Milan visit here. During my visit to Milan I met with reporters from and You…
  • The Best Apple Watch Stand for the Money

    10 Jun 2015 | 9:11 pm
    If you’ve been following this blog then, you know I got an Apple Watch on day one 4/24/2015. I also bought an extra charging cable that could remain in my suitcase for travel. I take my Apple Watch off every night and put it on the charger for the night. I hate wearing any kind of jewelry when I sleep and even if Apple Watch never needed to be charged I would still take it off every night. I knew from day one that I would want a charging stand to put it on. Even before Apple Watch shipped there were companies showing their stands and I was shocked by the price of some of them. Let…

    There has always been that moment where we have looked at a dress or a suit and wished, if only we could own the same. It is too embarrassing then to go and ask the person where did you pick the dress from and worst is asking the cost of the same. This is where Flipkart’s update to its mobile app would prove to be a life saver, at least to the girls who always have an eye for the next awesome dress. Taking cue from the Amazon Firephone, whereby you can scan objects with the camera and search for it on the Amazon site, Flipkart has brought in a feature where you will be able to click the…

While you have the regular list of bug fixes that have come along, it is the introduction of Apple Music that has made the update so news worthy.

As wrong as that name sounds, Force Touch is all about pressure sensitivity and we have seen it in the new MacBook Airs as well as the Apple Watch. Force Touch provides another way of differential input for the device. It is now being reported that not just the MacBooks and Apple Watches, the next iteration of iPhones would also bring Force Touch which would allow for an extra layer of inputs on the touch screen. The mass production of the device is set to begin sometime next month though the testing has already begun.

    While most of the big names have concentrated on coming up with a flagship device that is hot off the shelves, Lenovo has been doing things slightly differently. Unlike most of the major OEMs Lenovo is choosing to concentrate well on the lower end of the market and the mid-budget range, which is an interesting strategy given that the market in India is not as flourished as that abroad and the paying capacity of the people is significantly lower when compared to say the likes of the Europe or Northern America. Therefore, it makes sense to be present in a segment, which majority of the users…

However today, every new data storage company seems to be offering cheap or free cloud storage solutions.

  • 4 Criteria to Evaluate DDoS Mitigation Providers [Infographic]

    26 Jun 2015 | 3:02 am
    How fast could your internal IT department stop a potential DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack? On average, a DDoS attack isn’t detected by IT teams until 4.5 hours after it has commenced and usually it takes another 4.9 hours before mitigation can begin. With IT services outage costs averaging as high as $100,000 per hour, it essentially means that a DDoS attack can cost an Internet-dependent company about $1 million before the company even begins to mitigate the attack. The growing increase in DDoS attacks has increased the demand for cyber security and DDoS mitigation…

    Facebook is striving hard to become one of the most popular sites on the internet. In one of the bravest moves that Facebook has taken, the company is all set to give YouTube a run for its money. A recent research revealed that most users watch YouTube videos via Facebook and this gave Facebook the idea to run its own videos on the site. Facebook already knows which videos are most popular and which ones don’t really need to stay. It gives Facebook the upper hand to enable their own videos to be played and get more hits. Since Facebook will favor their own vides, users will be able to…

There was a time when the Blackberry Messenger (BBM) was all one had and owning a Blackberry was like a style statement. The addiction for the Blackberry Messenger might have faded with the launch of Whatsapp and other chatting apps, but Blackberry is in no mood to give up. The company is still sure that a number of users are still fond of the messenger that was once loved by all. An all new update for the messenger was launched on Friday and will…

After the recent Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition, we have had even more companies asking for our advice on which platform to use and why.

    Background From late 1990s until about 2011, before I did a lot of web development and programming, I worked on projects that usually required the functionality offered in the Adobe Creative Suite. Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and at times InDesign were my tools of choice, simply because that is what I was taught to use in school. Then, in 2011, my laptop’s hard drive failed and numerous attempts to reinstall Windows 7 failed due to it thinking that I was stealing the OS. A friend suggested that I install a GNU/Linux and try free and open-source tools. Shortly after, I was presented…

    Dave LeClair
    2 Jul 2015 | 7:30 pm
    Generally, most jobs expect you to work eight hours a day. It’s a standard that was set a long time ago, and it remains in place today. Of course, if you’re a freelancer, you’re schedule might vary, or you might even be able to make your own hours. But if you report to an office, you’re probably expected to put in somewhere in the area of 8 hours each day. That makes you wonder: is eight hours really the best amount of time to work? Could employees be more productive if they worked harder for a shorter time? Would that...Read the full article: Is the 8 Hour Workday…

    Simple emoticons have been around for a while but it’s the rise of smartphones that have really brought them into the mainstream. They’re used everywhere; from text messages to Instagram hashtags. However, what each character means is often subject to debate. Unicode publish standards on what each emoji should represent, but they are not always used as intended. Within different groups, different emoji can take on unique and personal meanings that can be hard for an outsider to understand.

We love telling people what we do and what we’re interested in, but most of the time, we have a hard time explaining who we really are.

Some still think twice when asked what their life mission and goals are, while some have very little to say when asked where they see themselves a good five or ten years from now.

    thebrokenkindle: skarylilone: thebrokenkindle: I got the overwhelming urge to read a book for the first time in nearly a year today and it was the most beautiful feeling ever, because, instead of having to sit there and tell myself ‘no, you have work to do and books to read for your course, you don’t have time to read for pleasure’, I could say ‘Hell yes’ and pick up whatever book I wanted to read and read it. This is what freedom feels like. So what book did you read? Small Favour by Jim Butcher. Felt so good to read it all after having left it lying around for so long.

    Steve Brasen
    21 Jun 2015 | 8:01 pm
    It’s time to take a serious look at Office 365. The cloud edition of Microsoft’s broadly adopted business productivity suite – which bundles such popular packages as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Outlook – has been both heavily praised and heavily criticized since its introduction in 2011. While the adoption rate of the traditional software edition of Microsoft Office is currently in no danger of being overtaken by its cloud-hosted cousin, recent adoption rates for Office 365 have substantially accelerated. Businesses, in particular, have shown…

    Here we go again. New releases of Microsoft’s flagship operating system are typically greeted with a combination of angst, curiosity, confusion, and dread in equal measure. It seems just as folks have gotten used to a particular Microsoft version, a new one is released with a completely different interface and requiring a whole new set of operational practices. Even worse, upgrading large numbers of desktops to the new edition in a large enterprise environment is a daunting task often avoided by IT operations teams until and unless it is absolutely necessary to perform a mass migration.

Plex has announced that the hacker was able to gain access to IP addresses, email addresses, hashed and salted passwords as well as private message. Payment information is not stored on Plex's servers, so that information is still secure. The streaming service refused to pay the ransom, and has reset the passwords of all affected users. Plex uses a SSO (single sign-on) authentication, so if the hacker were to reverse-engineer the hashed passwords, he or she would be able to…

Until recently, three legacy providers (Sizmek, PointRoll and Google’s DoubleClick) have dominated the rich media market. But that’s changing with a new crop of rich media platforms disrupting the ecosystem with new mobile and non-standard rich media ad formats, one of which – Jetpack – is located right here in Santa Monica.

    I was one of those people who pre-ordered the apple watch at 12 am on April 10 and still got the shipping estimate of June. I had bought the Space black stainless steel with link bracelet. It cost a whooping $1195 with taxes here in California and I was praying that it better be god damn good to justify that price. Sadly, it wasn’t. When I got it on June 2nd, after the usual adrenaline rush of unboxing an apple product subsided, and after using it for about a week, I came to the conclusion that this is a product that Steve Jobs would never have let to be launched in its current state.

    Andre Sólo
    2 Jul 2015 | 1:51 am
    In terms of SEO, the most powerful and basic step a company can take is to begin monitoring your rankings for your main keywords. Everything else—content creation, link building, and social—is likely driven by how well you rank and how far you are from the coveted number one position. Thus, if you have anything less than a crystal clear idea of where you’re at, your entire SEO strategy will suffer. The problem is, checking your ranking is not easy. Doing it the old fashioned way—simply googling your keywords—quickly becomes time consuming. A number of SEO…

These are things businesses know are important and put resources into getting right. By my count, a much more common mistake is either not showing your hours online, or getting them wrong. That’s especially true when your business has special summer hours. Lots of businesses have these, from restaurants with longer evening hours to small offices that close early on Fridays. The problem is that when your hours change, it’s…
  • Can Google’s Anti-Piracy Algorithm Be Used Against Your Business?

    Andre Sólo

    Google has been taking more anti-piracy measures, sometimes more than the copyright holders themselves These measures include spotlighting legitimate movie, TV show and music outlets, and pushing piracy outlets father down the listings. In essence, Google is making pirated media sites so hard to find that they may as well not be online. But how do they do that? The answer is, of course, an algorithm—in this case, a special update to their search algorithm appropriately nicknamed Pirate. This algorithm has been around since as far back as 2012, but received a major update in…

    Since the financial crisis, borrowers have been eager to get lower interest rates and better access to credit, while lenders have searched for higher returns on their investments. Banks, saddled with regulatory burdens, haven't been able to fully meet these needs. This has left room for the growth of a new market — peer-to-peer lending.  Peer-to-peer lenders like Prosper and Lending Club run online platforms that can quickly and automatically match borrowers seeking a loan to an investor willing to provide the funds for that loan at an attractive interest rate.

    2 Jul 2015 | 4:02 pm
    Last month, a homeless man in Victoria, Canada, found $2,400 in cash and promptly turned it in to the police. Constable Alex Bérubé issued a press release looking for the owner of the money, and web site Victoria Buzz posted it. The police said that if its rightful owner could not be found, the money would belong to the homeless man. But the rightful owner was found and was in dire need of the money. News about the generous homeless man went viral, so Victoria Buzz's founder Mike Kelly set up a GoFundMe campaign to raise $2,400 for the man. Within a few days the campaign hit over $5,000.

Some need both and beyond.

The real problem lies in the services linked to those cards: declining budgets, quality, coverage, scope, rising fees, and more expensive premiums. Also: the corruption and mishandling of state workers’ and private sector workers’ pension and health insurance funds. Those are the problems begging to be solved. There’s no problem either with non-registration of SIM cards. The real problem lies in the failure of authorities to use all tools at their disposal to dismantle, arrest, and prosecute syndicates. Not to mention the massive…

Y digo esto, porque el plan familiar de Apple Music ofrece streaming ilimitado hasta para seis personas por 14.99 dólares al mes.

    Dave LeClair
    2 Jul 2015 | 7:30 pm
    Generally, most jobs expect you to work eight hours a day. It’s a standard that was set a long time ago, and it remains in place today. Of course, if you’re a freelancer, you’re schedule might vary, or you might even be able to make your own hours. But if you report to an office, you’re probably expected to put in somewhere in the area of 8 hours each day. That makes you wonder: is eight hours really the best amount of time to work? Could employees be more productive if they worked harder for a shorter time? Would that...Read the full article: Is the 8 Hour Workday…

    Simple emoticons have been around for a while but it’s the rise of smartphones that have really brought them into the mainstream. They’re used everywhere; from text messages to Instagram hashtags. However, what each character means is often subject to debate.

Within different groups, different emoji can take on unique and personal meanings that can be hard for an outsider to understand.

The second most important factor is whether you need to maintain any animations and transitions that might be included in the inserted presentation. Depending on how you want the inserted slides to appear in the main presentation, you will need…

  • Implantable pump to regulate fluids in the eye and preserve vision

    Nick Lavars
    2 Jul 2015 | 7:17 pm
    When its levels are slightly off-kilter, eye fluid can create pretty big problems for our vision. When blockages occur they can lead to a build up in pressure that destroys the optic nerve and causes blindness, a condition we know as glaucoma. In contrast, a lack of fluid can cause the eye to cave in and stop functioning, a disease known as phthisis bulbi. Currently, little can be done about these irreversible conditions once they take hold, but Fraunhofer researchers have a potential solution in the works by way of a microscopic pump that can be implanted in the eyeball to regulate ocular…

At a glance it contains nothing you’re not already aware of – but it might.

    The Falcon 9 firmly rooted to the ground, for now. SpaceXThe spectacular failure of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket last week underscores a growing problem for NASA: its reliance on private companies and Russia in order to launch many of its crucial missions. The seed of this problem was planted several years ago with several cuts to NASA’s budget and the cancellation of the Constellation program, which was to replace the retired Space Shuttle and allow the US a domestic platform to reach the International Space Station (ISS), the Moon and eventually Mars. Recent recommendations made by the US…

Jean-Michel SANGLERAT/Flickr, CC BY-NDThe Tour de France is the world’s most famous cycling competition, and not just for its sheer length or stunningly picturesque vistas. The Tour captures our attention because the diversity among its 21 gruelling stages pushes its participants to their very limits in ways that other cycling competitions do not. To win the Tour, the competitor has to be a rare breed indeed: a cyclist who can excel in multiple areas, not just a specialist in straight line speed or climbing hills. This year’s…

He provided a handful of examples to illustrate this claim, including that the geographical locations of the draftees were not uniformly distributed across Australia and that some birth dates were more likely to be drawn than others.

    David Curry

    One of the most prominent skeptics of digital music, Prince has surprisingly been off the radar on the whole music streaming debate, until now. The Minneapolis sound pioneer removed all of his songs from Deezer, Spotify, Rdio and Apple Music earlier this week, while keeping music on Google Play and Tidal. It is a weird selection of services, but, for all we know, it might be taking a little longer to have the tracks removed from the remaining services. This is a direct removal from Prince’s publisher, Warner Bros. It is the first attack at music streaming, although Prince has been…

Launch the program and it scans the airwaves, displaying a table with details on any local access points: SSID, MAC Address, Vendor, type, RSSI, channel, 802.11 (a/b/g/n/ac), security details (WEP/WPA/WPA2/WPS), and when they were first and last seen.

    Reviewing most any MacBook Pro is a pointless exercise, because this year's model isn't much different from the previous—or the one before. That's why I typically buy refurbished rather than new. But I broke with that practice last month, after a sudden electrical calamity laid my wife's laptop to rest. Fried and died it is. With Apple releasing new versions of iOS and OS X and launching a streaming music service, a summer sojourn seemed opportune. I considered going Windows 10, which arrives later this month. But most of my BetaNews colleagues are headed that way, so I set out down the…

This latest report from Digital Daily (Korea) claims the device will be similar to the current Apple smartwatch but include a handful of key differences.While the smartwatch’s display will reportedly keep its current dimensions and resolution, the display will be thinner and lighter. By minimizing the size of the display, Apple can include a larger battery in the watch and extend the device’s…
  • Can I Listen to Apple Music, Beats 1 Radio?

Interestingly enough, Apple Music available, at least to some degree, in most countries and territories.Of course, having said that, your mileage could vary, especially if you live in Angola, Puerto Rico, Israel, Taiwan and Turkey. Apple Music hasn’t launch in those places at all.Apple has published a large, as in Marge, table listing Apple Music features vs country availability. There are 115 countries in said…
  • iPhone 6S Looks Nearly Identical In Leaked Photos

    1 Jul 2015 | 6:40 am
    Some of the most believable iPhone 6S images have been leaked and they reveal a phone that is nearly the same as the iPhone 6 on the outside. The photos are of the phone’s internal and external casing. Based on these images, Apple has not gotten rid of the external antenna stripes nor has it included a dual lens camera system.Instead of altering the back of the phone, Apple decided to use the exact same design as it did on the iPhone 6. Even the phone’s thickness and width has remained the same. This update is believable since “S” phones don’t tend to include…

  • Casa Brutale: Why Hang off a Cliff When You Live Inside the Cliff?

    mike chua
    3 Jul 2015 | 12:32 am
    Just when we thought a house hanging on the face of a cliff was super dope, the folks over at the Open Platform for Architecture or OPA shows us that cliff-based dwelling could be made even cooler than Tony Stark’s Point Dume residence in Malibu (which is fictional house, btw) by having the abode inside the cliff. Dubbed Casa Brutale, this ultra modernistic architecture literally sits within the cliff and becomes part of the cliff, save for interjection of modern building materials comprising of three thick concrete slabs and a bunch of glasses. Natural wood are also incorporated into the…

    In this day and age, you’d be hard-pressed to find a good vintage sports car, much less one in its original condition. If you are one heck of a serious motor head with special love for Aston Martin’s classic and very deep pockets, then you may be interested in “an exceptionally rare and highly original” 1969 Aston Martin DB6 Mk 1 Volante Vantage that you could have a shot of owning when it goes under the hammer at Barons at Sandown Park on July 28, 2015.

    Cycling is a dangerous affair due in part to vanity and sometimes, performance sake. Makes sense cos’ why would anyone ‘tarnish’ the sleek aesthetic of a 5,000 dollars Kevlar and carbon fiber bike with mirrors and that’s not to mention breaking the aerodynamic in process which may prevent you from reaching (bicycle) hyper speed, but not all hope is lost, because there is the Varia Smart Cycling Devices from Garmin to save the day (and you).

  • Plants survive drought for decades came back to life in seconds when water was added

    3 Jul 2015 | 12:43 am
    Humans can’t survive more than a few days without water, but some plants, in particular mosses, can survive drought for decades and suddenly revive with the first rain. When there’s no rain, Tortula mosses dry out completely and stop photosynthesizing. That is, they stop using carbon dioxide and the light of the sun to grow. They’re virtually dead, reduced to a pile of chemicals, and can stay that way for years. Researchers have found dry, 100-year-old moss samples in a museum that came back to life when water was added. These mosses’ unique ability to survive months, or even years,…

I am sure even if you have not used any of the existing container technologies, you must have at least read or heard about them. I am not the first one to write about containers and this is certainly not an in-depth overview of container technologies.

  • Software: The Process Is the Constraint

    Joe Kinsella
    26 Jun 2015 | 8:04 am
    A few years ago I had a project manager from my team in Scotland send me a copy of Eliyahu Goldratt’s The Goal after learning I’d never read the 1984 classic. At the time, the constraint this team was struggling with was an ability to get software specifications defined that supported the product management requirements. After reading the book, I naturally tried to identify constraints in all my processes, putting them through the standard Theory of Constraints (TOC) steps: identify, determine how to exploit, subordinate all to the constraint, elevate, repeat. I learned quickly that TOC…
  • Test Driving Virtual Reality For Under $20

    13 Jun 2015 | 8:16 am
    When Google Cardboard was released last year, I remember thinking: interesting, but no time to play. I’d almost forgotten about the project when my 8th grader mentioned his interest in virtual reality last Saturday. Since my youngest son’s interest in technology does not extend much beyond keeping up with the latest news in baseball and playing sports video games, I ordered him a $15 kit to see what would happen. I arrived home Tuesday to find virtual reality glasses attached to my son’s face. His mind was blown by the whole Cardboard experience, from the virtual worlds he explored to…

    10 Jun 2015 | 6:02 am
    I recently presented to a group of enterprise IT executives on the state of the public cloud. To my surprise I met business professionals who actually thought the public cloud was not going to have a big impact on their industry. I swiped my phone for a moment to confirm the date: yes, it was still 2015. I then did my best to understand the rationale, since it had been years since I’d heard this level of resistance. At its core were two primary explanations: 1) we could never trust a third party to provide our required availability, and 2) the public cloud is not sufficiently secure to…
  • A Lean Journey Into Agile Documentation

    Joe Kinsella
    28 May 2015 | 5:38 am
    Confession: I have a love hate relationship with product documentation. While I can appreciate the value of well written technical documentation, I can’t help but feel it has a poor ROI these days. So when I started my current company, I committed myself to investing in an intuitive user experience instead of traditional online documentation. Unfortunately as the product became more complex and we either failed to contain the complexity or had features that could not be reduced to a simple UI, I found myself looking for alternatives. What follows is a blog I never thought I’d write: my…

    On a recent long drive to Upstate New York, my wife asked me for the books that impacted my life. I found it surprising how easily I could name each book, and was even able to recall the look and feel of my personal copy (some of which sadly did not survive my wife's many Stalinistic book purges). Here is my list: Four Steps to the Epiphany I’d spent years thinking great products came from great ideas. Steven Blank’s class notes turned book introduced me to the concept of customer-driven development as a means of discovering the great product. Years later Eric Ries would make this concept…

    With innovative digital companies bringing new business models and fierce competition to nearly every industry from telecoms to transport, traditional companies are under pressure to step up innovation if they are to grow and remain relevant. But to do so, they’ll need to attract innovative employees into their organisations and give these innovators the space and resources they need to do what they do best. As companies recruit innovators, it is important to remember that innovation is not necessarily the same thing as invention. Where invention is a flower – nurtured through a careful…

Hyper-convergence is an extension of a converged infrastructure, where compute, server, storage, networking resources and software are pooled together on commodity hardware. They are usually systems from separate companies but designed to work very well together. The benefits of this include massively simplified management, which makes things faster, more agile and more efficient. It’s one of the foundations of virtualisation, but…

    The life of an entrepreneur is not a particularly easy one. Doors open one day and for weeks or months new ones can remain shut. When doors are shut and no amount of knocking will open them, there’s nothing to lean on but certainty. Sometimes that certainty stems from a distant reminder of when a door unexpectedly flung open in the past. Other times that certainty borders on mania, stemming from nothing more than an inexplicable knowing from within. People sometimes remark to me of their admiration of how far I’ve come as an entrepreneur (how far is actually debatable, but that’s a…

    3 Jul 2015 | 1:13 am
    Rocket Internet-backed German startup Helping has acquired UK-based rival Hassle to grab a slice of the UK on-demand cleaning market. While well-established in 12 (mostly) European countries, Helpling doesn’t have any presence in the UK. Acquiring one of the leading players gives it a shot at growing market share, rather than establishing itself from nothing against a number of rivals. While Helpling’s co-founder Benedikt Franke remained coy about the specifics of the deal, ‘sources’ ta

    When it comes to technology, there are two predominant types that usually whittle their way to the forefront of everyone’s minds. We’re talking about mobile technology, and desktop technology. Each of them have their benefits and their downfalls, and that’s what we’re going to explore in this blog. Will desktop reign superior? Or will mobile finally be the one that knocks desktops off the edge and into oblivion? We’re not psychic, but the trends thus far allow for some very interesting patterns to emerge.

    Recently Google added some new features to its applications Google Translate, its web and app-based automatic translation service, but how does it compare to human translation services? In the Verbalink test, the translation abilities of two Spanish translators, Adrianna and Gaby, were compared against Google Translate. The first section of the test compared translations of a document about Argentina’s National Beekeeping Council from Spanish to English. The second part of the test was a translation of one minute of spoken audio form Spanish to English. The results were judged on word…
  • Time for those last holdouts to finally embrace the internet

    For those of us who are old enough to remember life before the Internet, the World Wide Web, mobile data, and always-on worldwide connectivity, the mere existence of an online existence can still sometimes feel like a huge privilege. After all, many of us came of age during the ‘dark days’ when we still had to make actual phone calls and write letters using ink and paper to make any sort of plans or communicate how our lives were going. For today’s college graduates, though, the Internet is just…part of life. For them, the Internet has always been around and, more…
  • Tools that are changing the way you watch TV

    29 May 2015 | 8:26 am
    The television viewing experience has gone through some major changes since its introduction in 1926, from humongous living room fixtures with small screens, all the way up to now with screens as flat as paintings and just as easily mounted. While the design of televisions seems to be in constant flux, it appears as though we’d hit a relative plateau in how we watch television. The VCR and DVD eras were huge, as well as the introduction of TiVo and DVR but outside of that the way we watch TV has pretty much remained constant. Well, it looks as that’s beginning to change as numerous…

    There were few third-party games as anticipated as Star Wars Battlefront at E3 2015. I wasn't as pleased with the reboot as I'd expected to be, but I only had a chance to play a single match on a single map. Battlefront only really thrives once you get a hang of the character classes and learn the maps backwards and forwards. Unfortunately, we aren't going to have that opportunity for another few months, but there are gamers out there who are currently participating in the closed alpha, and one of them decided to share some footage from the game.

    CV-Library, the UK’s leading independent job board, is urging UK businesses to ensure their employees are taking lunch breaks. According to recent *statistics only 29% of employees are able to take a full hours’ break for lunch every day, resulting in lower productivity rates. With many UK employees not making the most of their lunch break every day, the Nation’s workers are constantly putting in extra hours, but are the effects of this positive? An average working day is built upon a 09:00-17:30 time-frame, with an hours’ break for lunch. However, if a break…

Challenging markets, increased competition, rising expectations and always on technology have created a perfect storm of never-ending tasks that beg to be done. When you look at those who succeed and compare them with those that don’t or those that achieve merely adequate results, one of the differentiating factors is how people use their time. So here, in a quick read (because I know you are short of…

Is there a parallel of that example (me seeking the free advice of a highly experienced personal trainer) between a recruitment consultant and candidate? Having great roles to offer is clearly of value but what else have you found that candidates really value from a recruiter? Do candidates find…

I started using DuckDuckGo well over two years ago. My initial impressions back then was that it was slow, the results were not nearly as good as Google’s and the name was stupid. None of those first impressions turned out to be true. Why DuckDuckGo? They do not track you. It always feels…

    I noticed recently that Spotlight on Yosemite was no longer indexing my Markdown files. Since all my notes are in Markdown format, and Spotlight is how I find my notes, this was a big problem. Reinstalling my current set of Markdown editors did not help. This did. Huge thanks to Gereon Sommer for the idea in Mac OS X Spotlight Enhancement. The idea is to use a built-in importer, in this case RichText, to do all the work for you. Note that this will probably need to be repeated on each Operating System install or upgrade.

I really want to ship, but it has to be right. For those who do not know the 80/20 rule, it’s a variant of the misnamed Pareto Principal wherein Vilfredo Pareto created a mathematical formula in 1906 to describe the unequal distribution of wealth in his country, observing that 20% of the people owned 80% of the wealth. This was then applied to other areas and seemed to hold true. In reality, Tom Cargill had it right…

Acting as the main facilitator for its "Ask Me Anything" question-and-answer sessions, Taylor was one of Reddit's most visible employees when she was fired, a corporate decision that moderators say will make securing and executing the site's signature AMAs much more difficult.

    Whenever the President of the United States tweets, there's always a strange race to be that first reply. This phenomenon is true for any celebrity or well known figure, but with Barack Obama it just feels different. His tweets are special — they're etched in time and forever preserved by the US government. The Secret Service is actively reading them. So having that first slot beneath Obama's words isn't insignificant. And people are putting it to amazingly bizarre and nonsensical use. To get it out of the way, yep, "dad" and "daddy" are by far the most common refrains. 9/11 truthers flock…

Plex confirmed independently that the server housing its forum and blog had been compromised, but said any associated passwords were hashed and salted, making them unusable without serious and sustained decryption efforts.

  • Unleash your users' sensor data with Sense360

    23 Jun 2015 | 8:17 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/PeskyMonkey) Modern devices are packed with sensors, but few apps take advantage of the data provided due to how complex it can be to make sense of it all. Sense360 aims to change this through enabling your applications to capture, combine, and analyse data from a variety of sources in order to create intelligent new mobile experiences. Even if every app on your device used Sense360, it would only have around a 5% hit on your battery after a full day. The company's new SDK which launched today allows developers to…

    The desktop PC is upgradable to provide unparalleled performance; but Microsoft has neglected to nurture it for years and left PC game developers with aging graphics APIs and players to use Steam as their platform of choice to connect with fellow gamers.  Microsoft's new Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, had a presence on the PC gaming E3 conference this year and acknowledged: "There have been times in our past where Microsoft has lost our way with PC gaming. As a person who now runs gaming for Microsoft, what people have done on PC is critical both to our success and to Windows'…
  • Opinion: Why the “Native vs. Web” contest doesn’t really exist

    16 Jun 2015 | 8:02 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/BartekSzewczyk) Web developers have suffered from debilitating cases of “app envy” by believing that GUI components traditionally used on native platforms represent the ideal, when instead they ought to be secure in the strengths of the web platform whilst honestly facing the challenges. The truth is that “native vs. web” is a false dichotomy - the correct path to take for development is always dependent on the circumstances. In some cases developers will be wise to use both options, and the contest between native and web development is like…

    2 Jul 2015 | 8:52 am
    (c) Research continues to show the struggle of the password in keeping enterprise security. But is there a solution to keep employees – and employers – in shape? In June, survey data from Centrify found that one in three admitted suffering from ‘password rage’ – one in six were so frustrated they screamed or shouted in the office, while one in seven admit they tear a strip off their colleagues. Back in January, research from SailPoint showed 14% of respondents would give their work password to a third party organisation if the price was right.

    (c) Enterprise mobility offers an unmatched opportunity to transform your business processes. This is not change in the form of a large consultancy approach, where massive business processes are redesigned over months and end users are repurposed, but rather change through simply removing large swaths of administration steps in your current process.

  • Why the enterprise mobility management market needs a rethink

    1 Jul 2015 | 7:21 am
    (c) A high-stakes battle has emerged in the rapidly-changing market for enterprise mobility management, also known as EMM. Three of the market's biggest names — Microsoft, MobileIron and VMware — have each made a string of moves over the past month that reveal polarising strategies. At one end are companies that primarily bundle EMM into a wider proprietary set of software; at the other, those more focused on specialism in mobility and teaming up with "best of breed" partners. The implications of these contrasting approaches reach far beyond EMM as we think of it…

    (c) DevOps: you’ve almost certainly heard of it, you may or may not know what it is, but either way it appears to be on its way. Some analysts preach about DevOps unabated; IDC argued in a recent thought piece how organisations deploying enterprise mobility and cloud computing solutions will profit by driving together collaboration across key business stakeholders. Yet the truth is a little less clear cut. Research conducted by TechValidate and Red Hat on behalf of Enterprise AppsTech in May found a wide range of responses; 26% of the 114 global Red Hat customers…
